Gotta love Castlevania .
Konami has announced that Castlevania: Harmony of Despair will arrive on the PlayStation Network in September. This 2D side-scrolling adventure will include the "Beauty, Desire, Situation Dire" pack for free; this piece of DLC includes the Pyramid of Ruin level plus new characters (Julius Belmont and Yoko Belnades).
The game already brings us several recognizable players from past entries in the long-running franchise, and let's not forget about that all-new 6-player online multiplayer mode. For PSN users, gamers will get a chance to sample an offline multiplayer mode that supports four friends. The environments in Harmony of Despair are inspired by the likes of Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin , and the main draw is to play cooperatively if you've got an interested buddy.
There's even a Survival Mode where you can test your skills against others; see where you rank on the Leaderboards. Well, just about anything with "Castlevania" in the title gets our attention, anyway.
